Prog Your Rock

Prog Rock on Earth Patrol

Sometimes you need perspective to appreciate something. Case in point, prog rock and it’s attempt to “elevate rock music to new levels of artistic credibility”(AllMusic. 2007. ) Really? OK. Well, as they say, art is in the eye of the beholder. Check out all the “elevated rock” on this week’s YouTube Tuesday after the turn. EPM “ripping our eardrums” Out!

  • Got love some prog rock!

  • What?… No Dragonforce?

  • You gotta love those album cover designs.

  • Cal: [Pointing to a framed poster] I mean, seriously, Asia? You framed an Asia poster? How hard did the people at the frame store laugh when you brought this in?
    Andy Stitzer: They did not laugh at me.
    David: Know why you’re gay? Because you like Asia.

  • I think I would have had Rush, King Crimson, and ELP in there instead of Europe (hair metal), Styx (70’s “corporate”), and Asia (ex-Yes turned corporate to cash in), or am I mixing up my Art Rock with my Prog Rock? Hell, I don’t know, I just know what I like.

  • The Final Countdown intro is guaranteed to annoy/delite when done acapella. I had no idea the lyrics were also fantastic.

    Asia and Yes: loved ’em both circa ’82.
